Today's cartoon in The Daily Iowan:
Everywhere you turn, another politician (Republicans and Democrats alike) is coming out in support of "marriage equality." They are saying it's "the right thing to do" and that they have "evolved" ... and it doesn't hurt that public support for "marriage equality" has made it safe for them to "evolve" these days.
This weekend was General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and among the many things I was listening for I found some very interesting and reassuring teachings on marriage and its true place in the world today. I'm sure there are some statements that will make people pretty mad, but they were meaningful and I took them to be truth.
Here are the talks I thought were especially relevant. The texts aren't available online yet, but you can watch video or listen to audio here.
